Brewing with fresh hops is a big endeavor, requiring four to five times the hop volume compared to using pelletized hops. Although the process is complex, it brings impressive results: Fresh Hop is an American-style pale ale with moderate hop bitterness marked by a unique and intensely grassy hop flavor and aroma. Fresh Hop is a superbly refreshing, medium bodied, light-copper colored pale ale weighing in at 55 IBUs and 6.1% ABV.

Reddish copper color with a good off white head. The nose was a mix of grass and citrus, it smells good,a relaxing smell. The taste is hoppy but not to hoppy.

Clear copper appearance with white head. Stong American hop aroma with a slightly grassy smell. Flavor mostly about the hops with the grassiness appearing here as well. Decent malt. Overall nice, but grassiness clearly detracts. Too big for a Pale Ale, should be an IPA

Great Pale Ale... Fresh Hop is exactly what it is... Pours a medium golden..off white head that last the entire beer. Hops on top of Hops. One of my favorite Pale Ales.

This is a fantastic Beer. Pours a nice creamy off white head that last. Amazing Citrus and Hoptastic Aroma on the nose. A nice smooth mouthfeel that most pale ales canít pull off. Flavor is citrus and Hops. Delicious Delicious Delicious

Fresh hop in all of itís dank, wet forest glory. Pour is really pretty with a clear copper gold and a thick, rocky white head. Aroma is super grassy, dank, wet, vegetal, with just a hint of lemon. The flavors are brighter but remain very fresh hop like with more of the citrus showing through and good balance from caramel malts. Good medium body with lots of fresh carbonation. Solid styled fresh hop/wet hop pale ale.

Orange in color, poor head retention. Herbal/citrus american hops aroma - the name speaks for itself. Defintely on the bitter side although not overwhelming. Good balance of hops VS malts."Very appetizing in its bouquet."

What is the appeal of "fresh Hops" I have not found it yet. Am I just old and stuck in my old-school ways? I think itís a fad that needs to end. Enough for the soap box. This beer has a great look. Itís golden and the white head just rocks the glass and stays. On the nose Iím getting some malt sweetness and some citrus hops and some grassyness. but it is nothing all that special. Medium body with a drying bitter finish. Now, for the important part, Iím getting bitter and grass in the taste. The malt really is not coming through for me. This is an average, at best, APA.

Beautiful head and coppery color. Aroma is very hoppy, very much northwestern. Hints of crystal malts. Flavor is fab. Plenty of hop flavor - grassy and citrusy - without being very bitter at all decent malt balance. Quite good, and felt pretty fresh to me. All in all, not terribly complex, but delicious and adequately named
